A pair of Outer Banks companies have been acquired by Vacasa, North America’s leading vacation rental management company, which announced Tuesday its first foray into the North Carolina real estate market.

The brokerage opening follows the successful integration of Wyndham Vacation Rental brands Hatteras Realty and Corolla Classic Vacations, adding more than 625 vacation homes in Outer Banks to Vacasa’s portfolio.

According to a press release, Vacasa announced its intent to purchase Wyndham Vacation Rentals in July 2019, and finalized the deal in October 2019.

The company has integrated Wyndham Vacation Rentals’ portfolio over the past year, and expects the full integration to be completed in the coming weeks.

Vacasa’s North Carolina brokerage is located at 41156 NC Highway 12 in Avon, and is led by mid-Atlantic director of operations and principal broker Amy Helle.

Helle is a long-time Hatteras resident and has worked with Hatteras Realty for the past 26 years. She brings extensive property management and vacation rental experience to Vacasa, along with a team of four active real estate agents.

The team will contribute to Vacasa’s overall growth in Outer Banks, and deliver on the company’s commitment to unbeatable service at every stage in the vacation rental ownership experience.

“Over the past several months, I’ve worked closely with leadership at Vacasa and could not be more excited to merge our teams,” said Helle. “Vacasa has tremendous opportunity in the Outer Banks, both on the vacation rental property management and real estate sides of the business. I look forward to aiding them with the planned expansion in this sought after vacation destination.”
